This collection of songs is filled with shockers.

We have rounded up some huge country songs that never managed to hit the top spot. While we might know every word, let's count down the topmost surprising "not Number 1 country songs."

"Fancy" Reba McEntire

This might be your favorite karaoke song, but the song only peaked at No. 8 on the country charts.

"Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)" Garth Brooks

A prime example of under-appreciated cowboy talent, this tune only made it to No. 8 on the charts.

"Amarillo By Morning" George Strait

The sun shined on this tune, but it still only reached No. 4.

"I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" Hank Williams 

Country fans might be surprised to know that not only did this tune not make number one, but Hank's version isn't even the most popular on country radio. His 1949 version only reached No. 43 on the country singles chart. B.J. Thomas eventually took it to No. 8 on the pop charts in 1966, and Terry Bradshaw took it to No. 17 on the country charts in 1976.

"Crazy" Patsy Cline

This is a "crazy" fact! The tune peaked at No. 2.
